Introduction to the Project

Middle States Commission for Higher Education requires an institution’s mission to clearly define its purpose within the context of higher education and indicates who the institution serves and what it intends to accomplish.  The Commission also expects the mission statements to be characterized by a sense of vision that, while not immutable, nonetheless represents a long-term statement of institutional values and direction around which human and fiscal resource allocation decisions can be made.  Therefore, it is in accordance with 2008 Middle States Self-Study Review recommendation that Montgomery College embarks on the process of reviewing its Mission Statement and institutionalizing a Vision Statement.  Together, the Vision and Mission Statements will provide the strategic direction and enable the identification of priorities in time for the FY2013 – FY2015 planning cycle.  

The Vision and Mission Review process will be led by President Pollard and a 26-member Review Task Force with representation from faculty, student, staff, academic and non-academic units, and community and business partners.  

Please call the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness at 240-567-7971 for more information regarding the process.
